Was Cam Ward the Blackhawks’ top choice for a goaltender this season? No, I’m sure they’d prefer Corey Crawford. Beggars can’t be choosers, and Ward won his first start for Chicago, so he’ll get a shot at win number two tonight.
On the Blues’ side tonight, Robert Bortuzzo’s three game elbowing suspension is done, so the defensive corps is a bit closer to normal. Joel Edmundson and Carl Gunnarsson are still missing due to injury.
Sadly all of the fun stuff before the game has been canceled before the weather is trash - no Blue Carpet Welcome and the rally is indoor and you need a ticket. In the good news, however, the Blues’ new Heritage Jerseys are making their debut tonight.
The Blues went 3-1 against the Hawks last season. Let’s get started on going 5-0. This is your GameDay Thread. Comment like you’ve already forgotten that there was a game Thursday.
Let’s do this. Let’s Go Blues.
